The Face of Fear will be featured in February.

Originally published in 1977 under the pseudonym Brian Coffey, The Face of Fear was re-released in 1985 with Dean Koontz as the author.

Brian Coffey had previously written the 1970's Tucker Series which is now out of print. Coffey is also the author of The Voice of the Night (1980)

Charissa Wilkinson (lilmizflashythang) | 247 comments I might re-read this one. Who knows.

I will probably read it. I try to read most of the group reads. The Face of Fear is a relatively short novel and I haven't read it for a while.

Reminder: The Face of Fear is featured as our February Group Read. This is a shorter novel, fitting for a shorter month. Happy Reading!

Jen (reader44ever) | 283 comments I might actually join you (finally!) for this one. "Shorter novel" caught my eye, since I need to read a "short book" for a swap I'm doing on Swap-Bot.com swap! So I might get the audio edition to listen to. :-)

The Audiobook is 6 hours and 49 minutes. Hope that is short enough :-)

Should be easily done in one day, so I'd say so! Thanks! :-)

EDIT: I bought it! So I'll hope to listen to it this month. Maybe this week, or maybe not until February 19th. :-)

I will likely be facing the Face of Fear in the face about mid-month. Got a few other titles in my lineup.

Me too. Plus, starting tomorrow I'll be in three back-to-back readathons. This book should be okay for the third, though, so I might be able to read it sometime on or after February 15th.

Fred (fredderoche) | 124 comments Hello, Everyone I have started


Dustin the wind Crazy little brown owl (dustpancrazy) | 5993 comments Mod
I am currently reading :-)

Jen (reader44ever) | 283 comments I'll probably listen to the audio of it I got closer to the end of the month (or sometime next week).

The Audiobook has the same narrator as The Voice of the Night audiobook (both are Brian Coffey Novels).

The story is similar to The Vision.

The Voice of the Night by Brian Coffey

The Vision by Dean Koontz

Fred (fredderoche) | 124 comments I have finished The Face of Fear.... Can't everyone jump from a 40th floor? Next month looks good too. Thanks


message 17: by Jen (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jen (reader44ever) | 283 comments I read it, too. I got the audiobook to listen to, but ended up reading it. (I was able to find the copy of it I owned.) I enjoyed it! Suspenseful, and with a satisfying ending, I'm glad I read it. :-)

Although, can anyone explain to me how (view spoiler)

But apart from that one minor complaint/niggling detail, this was a good book. I gave it four stars. :-)

I wouldn't recommend jumping from the 40th Floor :-) Better if you have some mountain climbing skills and equipment handy and even better if it's not in a snowstorm.

I thought the twists were fun :-)

I will have to re-read that part and see if I can explain :-)
